The wait is over. The basketball will return to the scene after a new stop due to the coronavirus pandemic and the restart of the Uruguayan League will be with the third points of the playoffs.

The series between National Y watery Y Trouville Y Urunday University They are 1-1 and on Tuesday, February 9, two of these four teams will take advantage in the keys to the best of five games.

And next Tuesday, a month and a week will have passed since that November 27, 2020, the day on which the government authorities decided to stop the course of the tournament due to the large increase in coronavirus cases in Uruguay.

Since then, uncertainty has taken hold of the environment, but Uruguayan Federation of BasketBall (FUBB), always handled alternatives and in constant conversations with the National Sports Secretariat (SND) and the clubs involved, looked for a way that the League could have its definition.

Perhaps the sporting moment of the teams is not the best today: impossibility of playing friendly matches, foreigners who went to their countries and returned a few days ago to Montevideo and training limited by the sanitary protocol that must be followed.

But the orange is biting again in the local concert and a championship that lasted longer than expected seems to be heading towards the definition.

Aguada, Nacional, Trouville and Urunday Universitario are crouched down to go on stage and start playing, under equal conditions, for a ticket to the grand final.

It will be like a restart for Uruguayan basketball, but with the seasoning of being in decisive instances at a difficult time for the entire country.
